I am using a master detail relationship. When i select an item in the master source, the detail records are shown in the dbgrid component. How can i count the records that match, and how to determine wether a dbgrid is empty, eg, no records in the detail table match with the records in the master table....
I hope someone can tell me how to count the records or rows in the dbgrid. There is RowCount method for stringgrid, but not for the dbgrid......
Thanks,
Marcel

I am not sure about this, but isn't it just the Table1.RecordCount that is connected to the grid??
I used it recently, when I had a filtered table (ApplyRange) displayed in a DBGrid descendant.

Marcelh,

If  MasterTable is master table
and DetailTable is detail table then

offcourse like Jackb says, you can use RecordCount.

If you want to know if detailtable is empty, just use

 if DetailTable.RecordCount = 0 then
  showmessage('Table contains no records');

DetailTable.RecordCount will give you the total number of records. Look out for dBase tables! (RecordCount will give you always the total nomber of records, also if you've limited the table with a range. The recordcount will not be affected by the range).

Have fun,
